    I just got a new optimum cable modem called SBV5120. I tried searching for an access point, couldn't find it. I'm trying to manually connect but there is no SSID or wep key for this modem. The only info located on the router is a bunch of MAC ID numbers a PIN number and a S/N number. If anyone can tell me what to do, it'd be helpful.

    you need to make sure that your router is broadcasting the ssid or, alternatively, go to the router setup page (you'll access that through your browser) and get the ssid that way.

    Good luck,

    I spoke to a technician and he told me that the cable modem I have does not have a SSID or wep key.

    That's just a cable modem, it's not a wireless router. The SSID and WEP keys are things configured in a router.
